My RCA mp3 OPAL player does not automatically launch when plugged into a computer and is not recognized by any of the various music libraries. It does charge and it does play.Since it was relatively cheap...


The problem turned out to be that I did not have a CD that was supposed to be used to re-initialize the OPAL MP3 player, model 4204-A. The CD was not with the player when I received it. And could not be found since the model was discontinued.

I just bought a RCA m4304 and when plugging it into the computer for the first time it shows opal initializing and won't turn on at all or go past the screen. Never got music on it or was able to use it.


When I turn on my M4304 OPAL it says Initalizing..... profiling requires 20MB free space. Shutting down. Then shuts off. If I plug it into my computer to try and delete files. My computer does not recongize it. It shows that is have a full battery. I have tried all the re-set methods given. I have tried downloading an upgrade. Nothing works. Can you help?

Opal is frozen


download the bios flash utility for the unit ( this is for these models (Opal M4004, M4008, M4018, MC4004, MC4008 and MC4018 Firmware ))

after downloading the executable you will want to run the tool, then while pressing the play button on the opal and plugging in the unit to computer at same time. Continue holding the play button till you get a little funky picture of a computer and device on your opal's screen ( or at least this is what mine does ). once the funky picture comes up you should be able to release the play button and let the bios flash utility do it's job from there. i have had mine decide to hang out for a while before running, but then again the tool does say it could take up to 5 minutes before successfully finding the device.

once it has fully gone through it's process your Opal should be able to start up again but unfortunate a part of the fix will also wipe the device day 1 clean.

hope this helps you out.

My MP3 is stuck on initalizing


If it get **** on initalizing you can hold the power button for 15 to 20 seconds and it should work. If that don't work plug it into the usb and then 3 mins later take it out and try to boot it up again. Let me know if that helps. Mine did the same thing.

The mp3 player ( opal ) stay's on initalizing.Having trouble turning on.When pluged in it say's to plug in. It wasn't like this when I first started to use the player.


DB corruption

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Rca opal m4008a


My daughter's was doing this. We found out that there is a button on the side of the player that says hold. She had turned it on hold, by accident. As soon as we turned it off, it worked fine. This "hold" button is for when pocketing it, so the battery doesn't run down.
